2  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re: Labor Party Fall 2014 Convention - San Francisco, CA - CON LOCATION SELECTION on: September 29, 2014, 03:44:12 pm
I am preparing a revised version of the by-laws, but in doing so, I would like to solicit some feedback from the rank-and-file.

What would you like to see done differently in Labor? How can we do things better? One proposal I'm toying with is term limits for members of the Politburo and requiring a pledge for officeholders to retire after a certain number of consecutive terms in one position or another. I think that both of these would strengthen our party because they would open up avenues for new members to get involved. What do you all think?

The potential downside to that is, there may come a time when a position holder is willing and able to continue beyond the term limit, and there are no other members who want that job- or perhaps the willing individual would be a bad fit for that job.  I would oppose term limits for officeholders.

As far as things that could be changed, I would suggest we dispense with the [CON], [BYL], etc. in these conventions.  Only Griffin is paying attention to doing that anyways.

There are few Wal-Marts in Minnesota largely because that market is dominated by Target stores here.

I nominate the great city of San Antonio, Texas

That's a Northeastern city?

I nominate Fort Lee, New Jersey

If it is not in the Constitution, I won't use it.

I'm not sure how to interpret this...are you rescinding your request?

I suppose I am, yes.

Okay...I modified the statistics post above.  The voter list will have to wait until the next update.

Governor Varavour has requested of me that The People's Region of the Pacific be referred to by its full name, abbreviated herein as "TPRP".

Can we not do that? It sounds Soviet.

If I continue to receive complaints from Pacific residents, I could go back to using the term "Pacific".

Atlasia, of course!  I honestly cannot believe this isn't one of the poll options and no one has mentioned it.

Of the options listed, Update.  Cheesy

Voted. Had to wait in a line. Never had to do that in the past twelve years.

And how did you vote- I'm guessing yes?

Welcome to The Party, Sawx!

It seems odd that you would welcome someone to a party that you don't belong to....

Doing better than the POTUS, so that's OK.

The POTUS?  As in, President of the United States?  That term is inapplicable here.

In this election, Cathcon/Spamage would have won the first round, but due to a poor performance in lower preferences, would have been eventually defeated by Marokai/Duke for the presidency.

How can you tell that?

Maybe the Fritz Hollings - Fritz Mondale - Fritz The Cat one.  He's had it for over a decade. 

Thank you, HockeyDude!

I do change it once in a blue moon, bit I always go back.  It's my signature signature.  Smiley

Note: This does not mean there are not third parties, it simply means the other major party isn't challenging the incumbent or the other person running.

In that case, what about Kansas senate?

25  Forum Community / Forum Community / Re: Did your mother keep or change her name when she got married? on: September 14, 2014, 02:06:22 pm
My mother took my father's name, as just about all married women did in those days.  Mom has passed away and my father is re-married; my stepmother did not take his name.

I have seen gay couples getting married recently using the hyphenated last name.
